Particles at Interfaces: from Bijels to Oscillating Pickering Drops
- Event time: 1:00pm
- Event date: 21st February 2011
- Speaker: Joe Tavacoli (Formerly School of Physics & Astronomy, University of Edinburgh)
- Location: Room 2511, James Clerk Maxwell Building (JCMB) James Clerk Maxwell Building Peter Guthrie Tait Road Edinburgh EH9 3FD GB
In this talk I will present an overview of a number of particle-stabilised technologies developed in Edinburgh. These include an easy-to-handle bijel system, bijel capsules and a self-assembling oscillating Pickering drop. On a more fundamental note, I will conclude by demonstrating that the cooperative motion of particles on solid-stabilised emulsions can lead to droplet coalescence.
This is a weekly series of informal talks given primarily by members of the soft condensed matter and statistical mechanics groups, but is also open to members of other groups and external visitors. The aim of the series is to promote discussion and learning of various topics at a level suitable to the broad background of the group. Everyone is welcome to attend..
